“I was shopping with my mom at Northgate to gather ingredients to learn some of her recipes when I saw a small flyer by the register that advertised the scholarship. I entered the store looking for ingredients and left with a perfect scholarship opportunity. As of August 25th, 2023, I stand proudly as a recipient of the González Reynoso Family Foundation scholarship!” said Marlene Gaeta, attending Chapman University. “The $1,000 will help fund my education by paying for my Film and Television Production Major’s hefty fees & and will encourage me to focus on my education while these fees are paid for. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I am forever grateful to the González Reynoso Family Foundation!”
